Upper Canyon access closed - 8p Mar. 22 - 5p Mar. 28 MORE INFO >>>


Sit start down above a rock and driftwood pile in a little cave with your left hand on a juggy hold in the crack between the boulders, and your right on a sloping pinch to the left of the big rail. Move up and right to the two rounded crimps, then left to a bad pinch and bump to a sharp finger slot. Then, set up to throw your right hand up to the jug beneath the grassy area on top, keep moving right on jugs to the highest point on the boulder, then mantle over.


Located on the same boulder as 'Smoke on the Water,' but is just to the left of the face tagging.


Pads. And watch out for the boulders behind you, however, falling off the harder moves gives way to decent landings.

Climbed this one today and cleaned the top-out a lot more as well as the left had pinch system. Fun line. Nice work, Jason.

Believe the tagging has been removed as of 10.1.09 (unless I was completely blind). Good news, good news.
